There’s a reason that fall is the favorite of the four seasons for many. In addition to marking the official countdown to the holidays, this time of year marks the commencement of sweater weather. While a cozy sweater is an autumn staple, choosing the right one marks the real test.

According to Marie Claire, browns and earth tones (which the publication adoringly dubs “craving caramels”) are timeless fall colors and are a particular go-to for the fall season.

Think about it: Browns, taupes, tans and other earth tones warmly complement any skin tone and perfectly pair with several other fall staples like overcoats, boots and scarves of any color. Also, this color palette makes for the most Instagram-worthy photos you can imagine (especially with the brown falling leaves serving as your au naturel background).

While Marie Claire listed the likes of Hermès, Dior and Tibi as the spearheaders of this fall runway trend, it’s safe to say that luxury high fashion pieces are financially out of reach for most.

To help you achieve this timeless fall look, we’ve listed 10 of our favorite earth-tone sweaters that will undoubtedly upgrade your fashion game this season.

From affordable picks from the likes of Amazon and Quince to more premium options from J.Crew and Bonobos — and everything in between — we’ve got you covered for every style, price and function.

Best of all, we’ve got both men and women covered with 10 classic options (five each)! Check out these hot picks below.
